Dugdale turns to a medieval text called the ars moriendi for guidance in preparing for death. That text proposes that patience, hope, humility, faith, and "letting go" are essential as the final hour approaches. Dugdale believes a purposeful, productive life should include recognition of our finitude, so that those traits are naturally with us at the end. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare

Don't squinch your face when you see this book is about the rosary. This new work by a husband and wife team is about finding a new process of meditation and prayer. Spiritual but NOT preachy, it is insightful and meaningful, delving into the lore of ancient rosary practice (before Christianity) and its value in today's chaotic times. It is also a personal story that travels through many paths on the way to an intimate understanding of Divine Feminism that two brave people chose to share with us. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan

Part self-help piece, part raw memoir, this new book by TV executive Tara Schuster is a practical guide to re-sorting out your life and working to prioritize your own mental health and live a happier life. The cover and bold title pulled me in, and reading Tara’s life struggle and seeing how far she’s come for healing herself was beautiful. The personal stories and helpful advice were well balanced with Schuster’s humor and modern writing style. A great book to lift your spirits! ~ Reviewed by Kirstin Swartz

The best element of any self-help book is the constant validation that your feelings of anxiety are not wrong or fabricated, and most importantly that you are not alone. I can’t put into words the feeling of relief I get when I use books like this one to help reduce my daily anxiety. "7 Steps," reminds you that it is okay to feel the things you are feeling, and shows you how to cope with your overwhelming emotions using the author's method, C.L.E.A.N.S.E. I highly recommend this book to anyone who struggles with anxiety and wishes to know how to understand it and work to live with it. ~ Reviewed by Kirstin Swartz
